hello,

i want to ask how can i copy some object into another lumion file??

for example i want to copy a tree  in my model into my new blank model.
in sketchup i can do this with comand ctrl + c in my origin file and ctrl + v in different file..

can i do that type of copying object in Lumion??

Thank you

best regards,


-Danniel Stevanus-

Hi Danniel, you can't merge models from one scene to another in Lumion.

ookay thanks morten for your kindness to answer each of my question..

once more morten..
i've already had lumion ultimate 2.1 build 4.. but i can't preview my previous work in lumion free 2.1 b 3..
i've tried copying the scene file in : documents/lumionfree2/scenes into documents/lumion 2/scenes.

when i open the lumion ultimate 2.1.4 the file has already there but it seems totaly black, and when i click on that file the app was crashed..

Can you explain me why and give me the best solution??

(it also occured in few Examples background that i copy it from lumion 2.1.3 free edition, but not all of them, just 3 from 6 maybe..)

Hello again, Danniel - the crash is intentional, so that people don't use the non-commercial Lumion Free with the commercial versions of Lumion.

Just thought would add, that you can achieve the same thing though in Lumion, that is, bring objects used into a different scene.  There's no copy and paste, so you use what Lumion provides and that's the Import Object -> Place tool, quick and easy, straight from the Library of imported objects.

This means that you can re-use objects without having to re-import and set materials.

It's basically doing the same thing, so long as you are aware that if you make changes, they apply to the object which is a master object, and any other scene using that object would also get updated.  If you want unique objects then you need to import as a new object.

Every object used in Lumion is either an imported object to your Imported Library, or a Lumion pre-made object that is still in your Library of trees etc, so you just place it in the scene, no need to copy and paste.

Of  course if you want to do things like have some tree of a certain specific size or rotated a certain angle then you can't copy those attributes, you need to place the tree and then set the size rotation in the current scene, nothing major.

If you wanted a whole area of a scene with trees and cars etc for some other scene, then the process is to save that scene out to a new name, get rid of whats not needed and work with what is, having care in regard anything thats a master object (as mentioned above), this way the scene can work like a template.

for example i've made some trees, cars, peoples and i've scaled it in the sunset scene.. can I open / copy those attributes in the desert scene??  or maybe in another different background scene??

See this thread for more information:

"Lumion Free scenes can't be loaded in Lumion Basic/Ultimate. This is intentional, so that a company can't buy 1 Lumion Basic/Ultimate license for rendering and then use multiple Lumion Free installations to create all their scenes."

You have to pay a fee if you want the developers to convert a Lumion Free scene to Lumion Basic/Ultimate. Please contact sales [at] act-3d.com if you would like to proceed with this option.
